Pilates Instructor at Buckhurst Hill, Potters Bar
Owen excelled on the track as a competitive runner for over 10 years, medalling at numerous county championships. Owen experienced numerous injuries during his athletic career, and despite being able to recovery physically, Owen was unable to recapture the same level of performance. It was this experience sparked his interest into Sports Therapy, and motivated him to pursue a career in this field.
Owen is a Sports and Exercise Therapy graduate and alongside his studies of injury treatment and prevention he developed a keen interest in biomechanics as well as sports psychology. As a Therapist & Pilates instructor he combines his knowledge in these fields with the fundamental principles of Pilates to help his clients recover from injury and achieve their goals.
